Mercury Tracer Questions
Trying to set timing on my 1993 mercury tracer 1.9L
The distributor cap Ian showing spark if I test it with the tester but there is a positive indicator on the middle prong in the clip and wire leading into it. Battery is good it will try to start but no spark
Mechanic did not set my timing correct. Not sure if he checked the timing marks on cam and crank prior to removing timing belt. Need to set it correctly. How to get it back to TDC... If I am correct I believe the ford ecort has the same engine... Need help please and thanks

I LOVE my Tracer! Bought in 11/2000 with about 45K miles. Currently has 209K miles (as of 7/2011) & still runs very well! Have had to do very little non-routine maintenance. I get average of 32-33 mpg; >90% of my driving is on the highway. I will be VERY sad when I have to get another car; I plan to drive this one until the end. I've never really had to drive the car in the snow, so I can...
Pretty good car. She has made it thur 4 trips back and forth to Texas. Great gas mileage. not a lot to complain about
Fun little car mine is actually good in snow up in NY only drawback would be brakes and stiff seats. Happily recommend this car tho gettin 25/34 mpg to and from work. Cruising along at 127k miles will drive it till i dies.
